for positions on engaging iran and supporting defense spending cuts. on "meet the press" this morning, president obama apparently, while he didn't say he'll name him, said he has seen nothing in any of the criticism to block him. senator graham, are republicans going to block chuck hagel if he's the nominee for defense secretary. >> i think a lot of republicans and democrats are very concerned about chuck hagel's position on iran sanctions. his views toward israel, hamas and hezbollah and there is wide and deep concern about his policies. all of us like him as a person. it will be up to the president to make the selection. the hearings will matter. they will matter a lot to me. and if he sends chuck hagel up it will be a confirmation hearing of consequence. >> chris: so, at this point you are not prepared to say the republicans would put a hold on the nomination, or filibuster it? >> i can tell you there would be very little republican support for his nomination, at the end of the day, very few votes. >> chris: senator feinstein, you will introduce legislation this week on the first day of the n

obama met with congressional leaders for several hours at the white house today to try to hammer out a deal before taxes go up on more than 160 million americans. after the meeting, the president presented a new plan to avoid the cliff and said he was modestly optimistic. >> we had a constructive meeting today. senators reid and mcconnell are discussing a potential agreement where we can get a bipartisan bill out of the senate over into the house and done in a timely fashion so that we met the december 31st deadline. given how things have been working in this town we have to actually wait and see until it actually happens. the one thing that the american people should not have to wait and see is some sort of action. so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i have asked senator reid to do. this put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle class families don't go up, that unemployment insurance is still available for 2 million people, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction
